The demo song stored on the DP-008EX recorders was produced using only a DP-008EX. We will describe how this song was created as an example of how to use these units. One of the greatest strengths of the DP-008EX is that, compared to using a computer, you can easily use their built-in microphones to start recording quickly. By using other functions, though, you can also make recordings that are even better. We used a DP-008EX because everything done in the production of this song was possible using this unit.
